We have our own little dining room with a table over a hole where we put our feet on a heated mat. We wore our yukata which also has a formal jacket. The meal is a multi-course gastronomic feast served by the lovely Iku whose English is very good. Turns out she studied English in Perth Western Australia some time ago. She is self deprecating about her English but she is full of personality.
When we get back to our room the futons are laid out and we have a snack waiting for us on the table. Onsen time again. It is only 8pm.
